Saint Patrick's Day Shirt & Earrings
I wanted some cute earrings to match my shirt, so I stenciled on shrink plastic that's for use with ink jet printers. Right after I applied the paint, I placed a paper towel over the paint and gently blotted it. If you don't, your paint will get kind of furry looking and we can't have that! Follow the instructions on your shrink plastic to shrink. For those who have never used shrink plastic (I have adored shrink plastic since I was a kid) you do your image on the plastic, put it in the oven and it shrinks about 60%, gets the thickness of a nickle and hard. Great for making cupcake picks, earrings and tons of other projects. Be sure to punch a hole at the top before you shrink the plastic!
